Roger Clemens MVP Baseball
Roger Clemens' MVP Baseball was a baseball video game released in North America during the years of 1991 and 1992 for the NES, Game Boy, Super NES, and Sega Genesis. All of the ballplayers have the likenesses and abilities of the 1991 Major League Baseball players they represent. However, since the game is not licensed by the Major League Baseball Players Association, the only player whose name appears in the game is, of course, AL Cy Young Award Winner Roger Clemens. The 26 teams featured in the game correspond to the 1991 MLB teams as well, though team nicknames have been changed due to the lack of an MLB license as well.

The game was released in Japan as MVP Baseball (ＭＶＰベースボール?).
Kingsley Thurber, the composer for Roger Clemens' MVP Baseball, also did the music for the Super NES version of Mortal Kombat along with Virtual Bart, Looney Tunes Basketball and various WWF video games.
In 1993, the game was released in Japan. The game was only published for Nintendo's Game Boy and Super NES platforms. The game features 26 teams to use, an exhibition mode and a regular season mode consisting of 162 games. The game allowed players to "save" their career progress by giving them a password. Players had to memorize it and enter it at the menu screen when they wanted to continue the season.
By pushing a certain sequence of buttons on the Super NES version, a screen can be accessed where the variables for offense (pitchers/runners) and defense (fielding) can be edited. Another test mode can be found by virtue of using either Game Genie or Pro Action Replay on the Super NES version; which acts more like a traditional cheat menu then the debug menu.
The Super NES controls puts more emphasis on defense rather than offense as the majority of possible move combinations correspond to pitching a baseball to the batter. Base running is considered to be of secondary importance in the game while batting is considered to be simple by Super NES standards.
